Comparing the mRNA expression profile and the genetic determinism of intramuscular fat traits in the porcine gluteus medius and longissimus dorsi muscles
(BMC Genomics, 2019-03-04)
Background Intramuscular fat (IMF) content and composition have a strong impact on the nutritional and organoleptic properties of porcine meat. The goal of the current work was to compare the patterns of gene expression ...
Integrating genome-wide co-association and gene expression to identify putative regulators and predictors of feed efficiency in pigs
(Genetics Selection Evolution, 2019-09-02)
Background: Feed efciency (FE) has a major impact on the economic sustainability of pig production. We used a systems‑based approach that integrates single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) co‑association and gene‑expression data ...
